Vale manager Neil Aspin says his players need to be “more proactive” in working with the local community.
Representatives from the squad visited local hospitals ahead of Christmas and gave out presents at the Royal Stoke Hospital.
We represent the club and we want the club to be very proactive in the community…
The Port Vale manager commented: “We’ve got hospital visits for the players which is again important.
“I think it’s important that players show their faces.
“I do think it’s important. We represent the club and we want the club to be very proactive in the community.
“It is vitally important and something that we need to improve on as a club and the players need to be more proactive in doing things.”
Onto matters on the pitch and Aspin commented that: “Colchester are in good form at the moment and they got a positive result last time out in a run of good results.
“Their confidence is high, they’re scoring goals and they’re going to be a really difficult nut for us to crack.
“We know what to expect, so we’ve just got to make sure that we prepare properly in order to give ourselves the best chance of getting a result.
“It will be a difficult game and they will test us, but we’ve got to go into it looking for a positive outcome and hopefully we can come back with something.”
